We, as students, negotiate with the University administration every day, and time and time again we have learned a simple lesson: money talks. It’s time for us to invest in a fund that gives us the agency to complete our own large-scale projects centered on improving student life. The creation of the Student Empowerment Fund…

From Friends to Family

When Netflix users logged in on January 1, they noticed something missing. The show Friends had left after a five-year run. In those five years, it had garnered a whole new generation of viewers and inspired ’90s nostalgia for the show’s original audience. For me, Friends wasn’t just another streaming binge—it was essential to my…

“A suicide note is hard to write,” they say, almost matter-of-factly. After two months, I have learned not to panic, yet my head pounds as if hearing it for the first time.

The clock struck midnight on January 1, 2020. A brand new decade, a brand new act.  Maybe I watch too many movies, but with a new decade on the horizon I’ve been looking back on my life as different acts, and reflecting on each one has given me a new understanding of myself in the…

“Kick over the wall ’cause government’s to fall. How can you refuse it? Let fury have the hour, anger can be power. Do you know that you can use it?”  Would you believe me if I told you one of the biggest bands in the world purposefully trashed venues on tour and snuck fans in…

The international community must know the historical context behind the indignation of the Bolivians who poured into the streets demanding that Evo Morales and his followers respect democracy and the rule of law after electoral fraud took place on October 20, 2019. The international community must acknowledge that Morales has ignored the will of the…

“When in doubt, throw it out,” reads a sign on the new recycling bins in the Intercultural Center. Over the past year, improvements in Georgetown University’s waste management systems, such as single-stream recycling, were made by the understaffed Office of Sustainability, which consists of just two full-time staff members and a handful of student interns….
